Everyone is always telling me that I am the spitting image of my Mom and that we have the same mannerisms and personality. Well, seeing that she is not only a beautiful and stylish woman, she is also one of the most kind, generous and funny people I know, so I take that as a major compliment! I feel so lucky to call her my Mother and best friend.
Isn’t she the cutest?! I wanted to treat her to an early Christmas present and had recently been sent a gift card from T.J. Maxx that was sent to me with the intent to treat a loved one who I felt deserve a special gift. I immediately thought of my Mom, so we drove over to a nearby T.J. Maxx and ended up find the most perfect gray cashmere sweater for her. Seattle tends to be pretty damp and chilly throughout the winter, so this cozy little number was just the piece to add to her wardrobe.
She has been wearing it nonstop since we got it and has been layering a cute striped top underneath it for fun. I took a cue from her and decided to dress up in a similar outfit. I told her to put on a pair of my sunglasses so we could match and we headed out to the front stoop to take a few photos for fun.(Thanks Dad!)
If you get a second, check out T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods’ new holiday campaign, Bringing Back the Holidays, which focuses on shopping for people, not for gifts. I love that it’s more about about finding that thoughtful present that will make for an incredibly meaningful moment this holiday, which was exactly what it was for my Mom and me. :) xo
